What is ‘Low & Slow’? – American BBQ, cue, pit cooking & smoking are different names for essentially the same style of cooking. It’s an indirect cooking method where the flame never directly touches the meat. It usually involves a water pan for moisture and low temperatures (115-120c) over long periods (up to 14 hours). It’s only authentic low & slow BBQ if it’s smoked over charcoal or wood. No gas.

In Australia we mainly associate BBQ with a gas BBQ set up cooking individual pieces of meat quickly over a direct heat source eg. flame grill.
